Commercial fish food can be bought anywhere, but knowing the alternative fish food for your aquaponics fish is essential if you want to save on your aquaponic system or in case commercial pelleted feed is unavailable
Nutrients are one of the most exciting and yet still mysterious aspects of aquaponics. For fish, this is mainly related to food, which the grower provides. For plants, the nutrients primarily come from the food provided to the fish. However, some amendments such as iron, calcium, and potassium may be needed as these nutrients not usually found in fish food. 
Both hydroponics and aquaponics grow plants in water. The difference is the source of nutrients. Hydroponics uses chemical nutrients, while aquaponics uses nutrients from fish waste.

Producing fresh and organic vegetables is of the main benefits of Aquaponics. However, to ensure that your plants are healthy, you need to avoid plant nutrient deficiency in your aquaponic system. Plant nutrient deficiencies are common even in traditional and other methods of farming, and in aquaponics, it is one of the most common problems.
